Jennie Garth: I only date guys that are not nice
Jennie Garth is convinced that she has bad taste in men.
"I only like guys that are not nice," Garth said on "The Jeff Probst Show" on November 2. "What is wrong with us girls? It's not like I want somebody to treat me badly. I want somebody who looks like they could treat me badly, but then really treats me good."
"I would rather lick the bottom of my shoe than go on a date," Garth told Jeff Probst. "The minute I think I'm ready to start dating, then I realize, 'Oh no you're not.' I just don't know how to date."
The former "Beverly Hills, 90210" star and "Twilight" actor Peter Facinelli split after 11 years of marriage in March. The couple has three daughters.
"I'm all about focusing on my kids, but I realized that I was using that as sort of a mask or an escape, so that I didn't have to focus on myself," Garth said of dating. "And so now, [I'm] turning and looking at myself and thinking, 'What do I need for myself today?' or 'How can I keep myself healthy?'"
Facinelli, 38, cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and listed January 1 as the official date of separation. The pair wed on Jan 20, 2001 and had been together since 1996, when they met on the set of a made-for-TV movie called "An Unfinished Affair."
Garth made headlines in the summer after appearing slimmer than usual in photographs. Us Weekly reported that the actress lost 20 pounds and went down two dress sizes in three months.
Garth played Kelly Taylor on the hit series "Beverly Hills, 90210" from 1990 to 2000. She later reprised the role in the spin-off series "90210" for two seasons. She also appeared opposite Amanda Bynes in the series "What I Like About You" and competed on season 5 of "Dancing With The Stars" in 2007. She was partnered with Derek Hough and finished in fourth place.
Up next, Garth will appear in a Lifetime movie called "The Eleventh Victim." The story is based on Nancy Grace's best-selling novel of the same name and premieres on Saturday, November 3, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
